Trio of Butterflies

I was delighted by the comments and votes for the Bramblings and the Pheasant. Thank you so much! They are still around here though not eating quite so much given a couple of lovely, sunny days! A special metion to Tarek for his wonderful Mod. I was greatly impressed. Grin Sorry, there will have to be lots of clicks from me today - recovering after a delightful but exhausting weekend with our Granddaughter!

Keeping to my promise to myself, I am again offering something other than flowers, this time 3 images of butterflies. I failed to get even one image of a butterfly during "summer" 2012, so it was back into the depths of the EHD once more for these. Here's hoping summer 2013 provides at least a few opportunities as I missed seeing these little beauties around.

V1 Small Tortoiseshell
V2 Red Admiral
v3 Peacock

A very fine trio of butterfly shots, Ann. The detail is lovely in V1, my fave Smile

Three super captures, Ann. I have a resident red admiral who comes to the verandah every afternoon, but he's very tatty and not worthy of a photo, unfortunately Sad Carol

A nice set. Looks like V1 may be a crop from a larger image, so is showing a touch of noise, and is a little dark.

Uploaded a mod.
